Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
My other entrepreneurial initiatives are still in the idea stage as I am still conducting market research and general research and also gaining adequate knowledge to kick of the businesses without any hitches. However, I have vast work experience and I believe that all attributes I acquired during this period will be the greatest tools towards success of the business. I have worked as a part-time event planner at a local event planning company for three years; a period in which I developed connections and people skills that are crucial in Marketing my project. My one year internship in a government office in the revenue department;provided me with exposure to various inventory practices and book-keeping too. Probably my biggest achievement was winning a tender to provide vegetables at a County Level Hospital for a year. As challenging as this was, it was my first ever exposure to entrepreneurship and I believe now am better equipped for entrepreneurship and running my own business.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I am working with already established entrepreneurs who have several years of experience. These are the mentors and they are really helpful in identifying ways to tackle daily challenges and also advising on ways to penetrate the market and have an advantage over my competitors.
I am also working with my peers who are also establishing their businesses in various field. These peers are very useful as they provide mental support and also challenge me thus keeping me on my toes always.
